What a crazy summer and fall it has been. For whatever reason about a week before I left on my trip that I had been planning for well over a year, I seemed to fall off of the wagon. On the trip I did well, I ate well (watched portions and made sure I had fruits and veggies in there). I walked and walked and walked quite a bit, but for whatever reason, I just couldn't bring myself to get back into my regimen when I got back. As a matter of fact I completed 2 additional 5Ks and did well but didn't train--I just did them. I just couldn't get back in the swing of things no matter how hard I wanted to.
I had no heart to exercise, my head would back my heart up so I took some time off.
Yesterday was my first day back in my excerise routine. I must say it felt really really good to sweat and work my heart rate back up. I'd like to say I missed it on my little hiatus but I didn't. I've been stuggling with a health issue and that was the last thing I needed to deal with. I feel as though I have finally turned a corner. I celebrated my 45th birthday this past weekend and spent it with friends--which I also have not done in a very long time.
I must say it's so nice to be back among the land of the living again. Getting out and doing things. I'm getting myself back on track and feeling good about it. I've come to the conclusion that sometimes you need a break..especially when your body says so....
